Notices outside the visitor centre at the Norfolk estate say that Sandringham has entered an official period of royal mourning.

Tributes were first placed by the Norwich Gates to Sandringham House within 30 minutes of news of the Queen’s death being announced on Thursday evening.

By yesterday morning, colourful bouquets filled the public areas, along with drawings, balloons, candles and teddy bears, with the sheer numbers forcing a road to be closed.

Police are managing a one-way system on roads approaching the car park, while estate staff in buggies are shuttling mourners who cannot manage the walk to the gates.

“No one will ever be able to replace her.”
